William Sutton was tried for, and acquitted of, murdering a prostitute by stabbing her twice "so she should not be able to sit", the wounds afterwards becoming infected. The case was the talk of the town, and became the subject of a series of pamphlets alternately arguing Sutton's guilt and innocence. In this pamphlet, the first three pages are spent excoriating the victim, in the guise of arguing that no matter how depraved she might have been, she still should not have been...
